Mbakuwaku concedes defeats, congratulates Chakwera for winning Malawi elections

One of the presidential candidates  Peter Dominic Sinosi Kuwani of Movement for Development (MMD) has conceded defeat and has since sent congratulatory message to Dr. Lazarus Chakwera of Malawi Congress Party (MCP) who appears to be headed for victory in a re-run of a presidential vote that was scrapped over massive irregularities.

Mbakuwaku Movement for Development President Peter Kuwani: Congratulations Chakwera

Kuwani said Malawi is a peace-loving country and people should not let their different political affiliation bring disunity.

“We have no choice but to convey out heartfelt congratulations to Dr. Lazarus Chakwera,” said Kuwani.

Kuwani said although there might be some questions, as a democratic party they thought it wise to “accept the reality that the will of people has spoken.”

Unofficial results compiled from each of the 5 002 polling centres gives Chakwera a dominant 59% lead ahead of incumbent President Peter Mutharika’s 38%.

Kuwani said his party and the rest of Malawians expect the new Chakwera administration  to bring social and economic developments as promised during campaign.

“We shall repremand them if they fail to deliver what they promised Malawians,” said the MMD leader.

He also reminded all political parties in the country that they should at all times respect the law.

“Democracy works well when there is respect for the rule of law,” he said.

Kuwani pulled a shocker at some centres in the Northern District of Karonga where they scored votes more than Mutharika of DPP/UDF Alliance.

Several quarters including Civil Society Organisations (CSO’s), religious bodies, political analysts as well as former President Dr. Bakili Muluzi have called upon all candidates to peacefully accept the outcome of the results.

Voters went to the polls on Tuesday for a second time in just more than a year to elect a president after the Constitutional Court ordered new elections in a historic vote seen as a test for democracy in the southern African country.

Peter Kuwani you are a better candidate than the idotic old dog Peter Muthalika who cannot believe that he lost. The only thing you need now is just join a party that can make you win elections next time. Take a leaf from another idiot Kamlepo Kalua who dumped his MMD and joined PP and won Rumphi East. But because he is a fool he dumped PP to join another fool Peter Muthalika just for a ministerial position. Chimunthu Banda saw that the APM’s ship was sinking and decided to support Tonse Alliance. Mark Katsonga joined forces with MCP as… Read more »

In support of Kuwani. Chakwera and his MCP (Not Tonse Alliance) Govt should implement what they were promising us. That was what we voted for. K 4900 fertilizer, K100,000 tax free or minimum salary, one million jobs, above all compensation to us who lost our properties, businesses, lives to demonstrations headed by headless Mtambo

@ phwisa, Im sorry, i think you need to wake up if you can, dont twist what Kuwani has said, this type of pain you have, its not only you who is feeling it, Even the one who was the President of this Country including the first multparty President Bakili Alison Muluzi is not happy my friend, try also to ask Atupele, he will tell you that he is not happy, so with you, i understand. Give Chakwera a space, you will see.
Thank you Kuwani.

‘Over my dead body, MCP will NEVER rule this country again. Over my dead body’. Mr. Arthur Peter Mutharika said these words. Not once. Not twice. But in his fickle mind and criminal DNA.
